Pick the album.

I think Secret Treaties is a better album by a small distance and I'm going with that one.
Xanadu is better than any song on ST though. But Astronomy is better than any song on AFTK, except Xanadu.

The fact that I never heard Secret Treaties means nothing when it comes to an album that contains Xanadu.

Astronomy is a great song, and Secret Treaties is a great album

But we are talking about A Farewell To Kings  .. Geddy Lee  .. Alex Lifeson  .. Neil THE PROFESSOR Peart

Sorry BOC

One song DOES NOT make the album.

I needn't be explicit to show my allegiance to the factual correct answer...

But if you need some help you can check my sig. :P

Sliced bread has a better shot vs A Farewell to Kings. And it'd still lose!

A Farewell to Kings is one of my favorite Rush albums. So obviously it will win.

I wouldn't know blue oyster cult if it kidnapped me and indoctrinated me into it's weird worship of blue oysters.

A Farewell to Kings devastates the land like a cosmic demon leaving nothing left in it's wake. And I like Secret Treaties!

Love both. And coincidentally, both albums are my 3rd favourite by the respective band...but I've got to go with Kings on this.

There are six or seven BOC albums I would take over Kings, but Treaties isn't one of them (though I do like it).

Secret Treaties, while being a great album (probably their best), couldn't hold AFTK's jockstrap.

it's quite entertaining how texas king seems to have signed up for this forum for the express purpose of trying to get people to vote against rush in polls.

My husband has lots and lots of Blue Oyster Cult so I guess I have probably heard Secret Treaties but if so I don't remember it ??

A Farewell to Kings, of course !!!!
